    Slowly Slowly the tide creeps up the sand,
    Slowly the shadows cross the land.
    Slowly the cart-horse pulls his mile,
    Slowly the old man mounts his stile.
    Slowly the hands move round the clock,
    Slowly the dew dries on the dock.
    Slow is the snail – but slowest of all
    The green moss spreads on the old brick wall.

    * CONSIDER SHARING YOUR JACK THE GIANT STORY AT THE END OF OUR CLASS!! So far I’ve read some fabulous stories!*

    Fable-Review what a fable is, p 25 last paragraph

    Read through p 26. Ask your student to narrate back to you what they heard and work on order of events

    **An idea for fable reading could be in Morning time, if that is a practise in your home. IF you have other children, they too could practise narration, and this would be a great introduction, as well as opportunity for your student to be more ready for the lesson later

    To be completed this week:
    Complete P 28-34

    IF your student wishes, he or she can do either
    The summary of the fable
    Or
